I call the R.W. Norton Art Gallery a hidden Gem because it's located in a neighborhood off of Line Ave. The Gallery's focus is American Art with special attention paid to Western Artists like Frederick Remington. Highlights of the gallery include gun and doll galleries....More

You won't regret visiting Norton. You will either fall in love with the exquisite azalea garden outside, or the Remington's inside. Either way you will be looking at lovely things and doing it for free. Can't beat that.

No photography is allowed inside or on the grounds. In years past, photographers used the beautiful grounds for backgrounds for pictures. But, some got a bit unruly, even brought a horse and buggy onto the lawn and ruined... More
